The Little Tea

Jan Karpíšek: The Little Tea, acryl on canvas, 60x70 cm, 2009

Original linear painting by painter Jan Karpíšek "The Little Tea" was created in Berlin in September 2009 exhibition in F.I.T., a former gas station already converted on the art side. A big muscled man drinking tea from a tiny cup is a funny metaphor of disproportion or power of natural chemicals?

Über Skizzen

Jan Karpíšek: Über Skizzen, (painting based on live reading by Tobias Roth), acryl on canvas, 60x70 cm, 2009

Original freestyle painting by painter Jan Karpíšek "Über Skizzen" was created while Tobias Roth has been reading his essay at the Betakontext exhibition in Berlin F.I.T. of Dida Zende, a former gas station already converted on the art side, in September 2009. Painting based on listening, free associations in foreign language, which Karpíšek knows only partly and he understood only about a tenth.
